Richard.
You know why? Cuz, there is connection.

Shkannon is like:

A boy is born John.
A boy's adoptive parents decide to name him Richard.

No connection between them.

Anyway, Shkannon cannot solve EP3 in a human way. A anime viewer would never accept your explanation. There also are no clues about Kanon and Shannon sharing a body in EP 1-4. Also, there is no human explanation about such a desease, where a human can kill it's personalities when he wishes too, and we don't even have an explanation about such an illness. It's not a detective solution, where you can use only common things that are in the real world or something given by the author.

What about the motive, that is fairy "innocent and pure"? Yasu seems just like an angry mass murderer, yet the red truth says otherwise.

Also, how did Shannon kill Kanon is a practical way? If the detective would be watching, what would she do? Close her eyes and yell "Die Kanon"? It isn't physicly possible, but yet you still believe it as an explanation of a detective mystery?

And what do you count when it's down to the 17 people? Bodies? Then please say who's body killed nanjo. Personalities? Then there must be like 25 of them.

I have nothing agains shkanontrice, until it's not a "theory", cuz it dies in game 3 mercelessly, aswell like in game 5 (only the peoples in the cousins room don't have alibies). It doesn't matter does Rosatrice solve all puzzles (yet it does), Shkannon is the answer to the mystery side of umineko the same way Natshuhi is. It's a truth implied by the author, yet it isn't the truth, and we have all red truth for that before our noses.

Shkanon is dead in game 3. And it will be for all eternity.

Yep she has no influence on the games until now and does not exist in the world before them. But that matters? She still increases the total number of people by 1 and there can't be more than 17 on the island. Since Erika has no influence that means Games 1-4 must have 16 or less people.

She is the 18th person, in the imaginary Bern\Lambda game:

You have really selective memory here. What red truths come out directly after that and what effects do they have on Erika?

There's also plenty of clues about what was happening with Shkanon in ep 1-4. A lot of us came to the conclusion during episode 1-4 we just found it incredibly silly. But covering your eyes and ears after so much evidence points to it has come out in ep 5-8 and the supplementary stories like Our Confessions is folly.

There are many, althrough you didn't name any XDDDDDD
I never said Shkanon wasn't implied. It is. Like the Battler's parent's theory. But it is dead in a closed room murder.

Our confession's ending cleary says there is one more story that wasn't told. And it is for 1 in 1000.

18th person is simply a title given to Erika as it is assumed that there were 17 people on the island beforehand and she then becomes the 18th assumed person on the island.

So by your logic, John is dead.

Anyway, Shkannon cannot solve EP3 in a human way.
The true culprit (the person who is the vessel for Kanon, Shannon, Beatrice, etc.) decides to start killing people during the first night like always.
- At least one pair of parents is bribed by the culprit before the game starts (likely Rudolph and Kyrie).
- The servants are killed except for Genji who exists on as Ronove (Kumasawa tried reasoning with the culprit as shown in the battle with Virigilia, Gohda is a liability).
- The culprit poses as dead Shannon in the parlor and uses the order of the locked rooms to change places and pose as dead Kanon in the church.
- Eva solves the epitaph and gains the ring of headship from the culprit.
- Rosa is lured to the garden by Maria.
- Rosa is killed by the culprit and Maria (though the culprit loves her) needs to be silenced.
- Kyrie, Rudolph, and Hideyoshi are shot down during an ambush in the mansion
- George is lured outside by the culprit who to him is Shannon, but the true culprit kills him nonetheless
- Natsuhi and Krauss get knocked out and strangled to death because they saw the culprit leaving with George
- the culprit poses as a dead Shannon when the survivors arrive but leaves the 07151129 code for Eva who solved the epitaph
- Nanjo is silenced because he helped lock the windows again after George left the guesthouse

What is so non-human about this solution?

It's not a detective solution, where you can use only common things that are in the real world or something given by the author.
I think you are under the mistaken assumption that the culprit assumes these roles to be real people. They feel like real lives to him/her because of the time spent living as them, but they are still just roles that can be changed and discarded at will.
That's why I find "personalities" the wrong word, they are the ultimate form of giving "a way of life" form. My behavior at work and at home are completely different but that doesn't mean I regard them as being separate people.

And concerning detective stories, what you wrote is nonsense.
Read, And Then There Were None, A Murder is Announced, Hercule Poirot's Christmas (all Agatha Christie), The Hollow Man, The Burning Court (both John Dickson Carr), The Zodiac Murders (Shimada Souji), Murder in the Decagon Mansion, Labyrinth Mansion and Doll Mansion (Ayatsuji Yukito), The Inugamis (Yokomizo Seishi) and several other famous pieces of classical detective fiction. Identity tricks have been a staple since very early on.

Where does it say that?

Quote:

The body that formerly inhabited Shannon and Kanon and is at the same time used to give Jessica the illusion of being rescued by Kanon.

As far as I understand that part, the goat is spouting: Then...then one of the characters was killed prior to the incident and culprit X sneaked in impersonating them...
To which Dlanor replies with Knocks 1st : It is forbidden for the culprit to be anybody not mentioned in the early parts of the story.
And Will's reply at the bottom is along the lines of, "I'm sorry, but this had already been stated since the very first game."
At least that's what I understand out of it.

Red truth isn't about assuming. It a perfect truth. She is the 18th human in the 5 and 6 game, where she exists.

Human X isn't a solution.
I can make a Sakutarotrice theory and blame a human X, and it would be more revelant then shkanon.

There is no such thing as roles in a murder mystery. If there would, it would be written in the novel EP1-EP4.

And you have 1 name anyway, I suppose.

I'd like to hear you version of Shkanon's motive.

Could you teach me that? You speak about a supernatural think like a thing everybody could. Knox forbidds using supernatural explanations of anything in a detective story.

Quote:

Yup. There are 17 humans in EP1-EP4, and 18 in EP5 and EP6.

Battler rejected her existence, since she was a living dead anyway.

Why did she say 18 in red, not 17?
Red is truth. It's not a thought. It absolute truth.

Doesn't Erika actually say something about the 17/18 paradox in the EP8 manga during her duel with Battler? I don't remember the exact wording, but her solution was something along the lines of "I was the 17th by number of bodies, but the 18th by number of names".

If you don't remember well, please go and first reread that episode, and come back with proof in the form of a screenshoot.

You have clearly not read many murder mysteries.

That's handy, because they were written there, along with information about furniture, and mysteries which can only be solved using personality "death". ShKanon is a solution which people had already been able to guess long before Umineko Chiru even started. I believe some people had already guessed it by ep 2; you cannot claim that it's something which is impossible to work out using the early episodes.

jTiKey, have you got any response to the following manga screenshot from ep 8? I don't believe you've addressed it. It's something which confirms ShKanon outright.

It can be solved without it. If you can't solve something a normal way, that doesn't mean, that you must start using paranormal explanations.
Rosatrice does explane all well.

"It's something which confirms ShKanon outright."
I've answered this before too.

Also, confirmation is nothing, if ShKanon can't explane Nanjo's death in a normal way.
There are confirmation that Eva is the culprit. So what?
A theory is right, if it doesn't contradict the red. Who cared, that is has a confirmation or two, if it cannot explane whodunnnit, howdunnit and whydunnit?

Why are you avoiding the subject. It's a perfect truth that Beatrice statement applies to all games. To deny this is to deny the entire foundation of every argument you've made in this thread.

Also Erika can have the title of an 18th person because she was considered to be the 18th person. The Red is still a perfect truth, it's context is just blurred.

Hi, pleased to meet you! I am Furudo Erika, the detective!! I may be an uninvited guest, but please, welcome me!!
I am the visitor, the 18th human on Rokkenjima!!


If you look at her statements in context she's just naming off all of her titles.
My blue truth works because multiple interpretations of a single truth are allowed.
Also,
if you interpret this red literally you violate Beatrice's Truth from Game 4. It's been shown that truth from game 4 carries over to game 5 with people recognizing Kinzo. Therefore Erika cannot in the most literal sense be the 18th human body on the island because the perfect red truth denies it.

Valkama, there was an addendium about Erika at the beggining of EP5.

She exists only after game 4. She doesn't influence games 1-4. How can she be a counted as a human, if she doesn't exist?

Erika is the 18th human on the game boards she exists in. But she doesn't exist in Beato's games.

Actually all this doesn't matter, cuz there is no name for the Nanjo murderer. :3

Beato made the rule that no more than 17 humans are allowed to exist and that it goes across all games(Even those not played yet. After all isn't all red perfect?) Red from EP4 carries into EP5 and this is shown in EP5 itself. 18th human bodies simply aren't allowed to exist on the island period. Regardless of Erika's effect on 1-4. Regardless of the Game master.

The red truth is absolute!! A perfect truth, which no one can overturn no matter how hard they try!!
Even the ending says no one can overturn it. Not even Lambda in the 5th game :3


Also regarding nanjo's murder:
Maria: George onii-chan couldn't kill an adult. He could kill a kid though.

Maria isn't the culprit so George simply can't kill adults.

Battler states in EP8's manga that a truth like this applies to his character an thus is present across all games despite only first appearing in EP8.

Although I've read the past few pages, I didn't see any adequate explanation of your apparent claim that it is impossible to solve eps 1-4 with ShKanon in the early episodes. Especially given that we all know for a fact that people did solve those eps with ShKanon at the time.

I have also not seen you adequately address the issue of how you can explain away the outright confirmation of ShKanon in Chiru.

If you do have arguments you believe can address those, would you consider re-stating them more clearly or at least quoting them?

Confirmation is confirmation, and it can't be handwaved away that easily. Essentially, what you're saying there is that although ShKanon is confirmed beyond doubt, you don't like it and are choosing to ignore it.

You're free to do so, but you can't also claim that you are arguing logically and rationally and expect people to respect your arguments.

KnowNoMore did it excelent in an hour video(It is the 2nd part where he explanes the howdunnit). Why must i copy paste it here? There is a Rosatrice wiki page being written. You may read it whet it will be done.

I came here only for the 3rd game. I got no who, how and why. Other things don't matter. Thank you for the confirmation.

Wow, I hadn't heard this before. Just to make sure I understand this right - this means that the character-based purple text wasn't limited to just that one game, and it applies through all of them?

Firstly, you can't expect people to go and spend hours on limited bandwidth looking at videos online.

Secondly, KnownNoMore's theory has been analysed and thoroughly discredited here multiple times before. By this point, it's dull. So, I wanted to know whether your theory was any different, and to give you the opportunity to outline and defend your theory on your own terms. Rather than saying "This other guy's long, inaccessible theory is mine and is perfect, go and look at that" you could outline the theory as you see it and then defend it using your own skill. That way, we would know which parts of the theory you consider essential, and you could discuss and defend the theory. Just pointing to somebody else's theory in this curcumstance is not so conducive to discussion.

For example, you appear to take the position that Rosatrice theory has a perfect who, how, and whydunnit. But you have not explained why you think that, only pointed to KnM.

...Wait, you're here only to talk about the third game? This is the spoilers, theories and interpretation thread, not the ep 3 thread. If you want to talk only about things which are mentioned up to ep 3, denying the existence of the further games in any way, this is the thread you want: http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=68453

If, however, you want to argue in a way that does not pretend that facts that you don't like exist, stopping engaging in the "lalalala I can't hear you, who cares about the facts" school of argument when people remind you of them, you could stay in this thread. But that's entirely up to you.
